Wasn't Xuphor the one who lied about having terminal cancer then a while later pretended to be his sister just to post a message saying he had died. Then the fake sister got caught out somehow then everything went a bit crazy for a while.
Xuphor is the one that tried to scam the site for attention, had money offered but at least had the sanity to not accept it (afaik). Then it all got out of hand and lies beget more lies into this mad unraveling craziness. Then they tried to come back twice afaik and were banned both times.
Vipera just lost his mind over the patreon and was some woman hating nutjob who had it out for some of the staff.
